In setting up my new ride I determeined that the ideal stem length would be a 110mm at 10 degrees. Off I go to find a nice lightweight one but I can't. It seems that most manufacturers have gone to 5 , 6, or 7 degree designs. Thomson and Race face make 15's (why?) and Ritchey makes a 17 (for whom?) but I can't seem to find anything in between. I've looked for a left over '03 Easton EA 50 weld/forge in my length but none seem available even from the big online vendors or eBay. There seems to be plenty of welded EA 70's with the hinge but I don't like the design or weight and the Easton mags have a reputation for corrision. Any ideas? thanks

Get a 7° and put a couple of spacers under it.

I have a Sette stem on one of my bikes. It's a 90mm, 10 degree rise and weighs 135g.
FYI: I just got an email from Thomson informing me that they are going to come out with a 31.8 10 degree stem. Seems to be a move afoot to the 31.8 standard.
